Hello, will be driving around the area but would appreciate your valuable feedback on anything we may not see immediatley. Is Deltona known for crime, issues with flooding? I have seen a few nice homes in a place called Lake Baton Estates. The homes look about 5-8 years old, nice lot sizes. Price seems good but I never count my chickens...

We are hoping to find 3 car garage, no rear neighbors, between 2300-2700, single story, under 400k if possible. We will put more down if we find a great place. I like the look of Deland and will continue looking there too.

If we find a great area, we will start talking to a realtor but want to do some research first.

Have a great day, folks.

The demographics in Deltona are not good. And most of that county is no good. Pick another county.

Not recommended, there much better areas in Central Florida. Also, you posted this in the Orlando forum, the Orlando metro area would be a significantly more desirable area to live in than Deltona. If you are looking to be closer to Deltona, I would recommend the areas North and Northeast of Orlando, these very desirable areas to live in; Altamonte Springs/Longwood, Lake Mary/Sanford, Oviedo/Winter Springs areas.

Thanks, Mr Knight, I wasn’t sure where to post the thread based on the options I saw. Appreciate your response.

Not all of Deltona is bad and while most is not considered desirable, there are areas you might still consider given your price point and wish list for larger lot/larger home. The neighborhood you're referencing is Deltona Lakes which is a newer section of town that seems to be doing well in terms of holding value. All in all though I would recommend looking into nicer locations nearby like the SE side of Deland off of Orange Camp Rd. or in Debary in neighborhoods like this https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/5...47954343_zpid/ or this https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/3...54887108_zpid/

I agree with this. Particularly DeBary, which is a very nice town for the most part.
Deland also has some great areas. Ignore the comment above writing off the entirety of Volusia County, as that poster is a known troll (account soon to be banned, guaranteed.)
DeLand is home to Stetson University, after all.

I'm not a fan of Deltona in general though, but that's just me. I just don't like those huge "planned community" type of areas... Spring Hill, Deltona, Palm Coast, and a bunch of places in SFL outside of Miami... Not my cup of tea. Frankly, I see no reason to move to Deltona when you have some much nicer areas right next door.

Thanks so much, we looked at Huntington Downs and Victoria Park in Deland, preferred HD because of the lots. Wasn’t sure about Emerald home builder. I did like the Orange Camp area.

Well it might be okay now, but when its surrounded by bad areas how long can it being good last? Metrowest used to be nice too.

And for the other one called me out -- no I would not live in Volusia Cnty. It has some of the worst towns in the metro area. Holly Hill, Daytona, Deltona, Orange City. Oh, and flooding problems too. You can have it.

The worst towns in WHAT metro area? Volusia is practically its own MSA, with only the sparsely populated Flagler County included.
LOL at writing off an entire, LARGE county (and entire MSA really) because of a select few bad areas.

But then, according to you, you can't live in Osceola County (too many Hispanics) you can't live in Orange (too many Hispanics,) you can't live in Volusia because of flooding and some bad hombres... What does that leave you with? Seminole County?
